Over the last 20 years of working in the bridal industry I can confidently say that I have seen and tasted a vast number of wedding cakes.
The wedding cake can be an elegant centrepiece or a subtle sophisticated dessert station. Current trends include the “naked” cakes, metallic accents, cheese wheel towers and the roaming dessert stations and candy buffets.
I would have to say that after designing your one off custom dream gown, wedding cake tasting must be up there amongst the second most enjoyable aspect of planning your special day, if you have a sweet tooth like me. As Krysten from Amour Cakes states, you can: “Add edible elegance to your special occasion with a meticulously crafted and decadent work of art.”
